Subject: Jeri's Carjacking
Well, just as everybody was leaving, we had a carjacking.

Jeri took a shortcut over the grass, and got her car stuck on a stump. Mick, organizer that he is, took charge. He and about eleventy-dozen helpers jacked up the car, put planks under the tires, and rolled the car off the stump. While this was going on, the Shellbacks were busily making up jacking shanties. The one that seemed most popular was "Leave Her, Jeri, Leave Her."

But the car got free and everyone left safely, and the carjacking was a spectacle I'm sure the Shellbacks won't forget.
Neither will Jeri.

It sure was a wonderful weekend. Lots of lovely songs, and lots of lovely people. Shellbacks, it was wonderful meeting you. I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip as much as we enjoyed spending the weekend with you.

Gee, Mick, I guess this makes you a genuine hero.
